Don't waste the time ... current cvs will _never_ support the old
I'm working on getting the ALSA stuff to work, but it's not too easy
and currently the Power Supply Fan of my workstation is broken so
I need to get a new one first and then we'll see ...
Also one of the problems is finding a working current cvs kernel ;)

I think I once got it to work a bit under 2.2.10 or something like that.
Everything newer, like 2.4 is a big no no.
Hmmm, my Power Supply smells again ... cu later guys
